Blue Eyeshadow and Hot Pink Lipstick

Those are the two things that the cool girls in Jr. High stole from Hook's Drugstore on the corner. It was part of what went into being "cool", along with Jordache jeans and a Unicorn Trapper Keeper. The rationalization was that Hook's made plenty of money but twelve year olds didn't. Makeup costed way too much for people who got $3.00 a week in allowance, and it just wasn't fair.

Blue eyeshadow is not so cool anymore, and Hook's actually went out of business. But the cool kids are still stealing. The music industry makes plenty of money, but software coders in their twenties and thirties don't. Music costs way too much for people who make $28K a year, and it just isn't fair.
